Skip to comments.Obama snubbed Netanyahu for dinner with Michelle and the girls, Israelis claim
Posted on 03/25/2010 9:22:39 AM PDT by propertius
Benjamin Netanyahu was left to stew in a White House meeting room for over an hour after President Barack Obama abruptly walked out of tense talks to have supper with his family, it emerged on Thursday.
The snub marked a fresh low in US-Israeli relations and appeared designed to show Mr Netanyahu how low his stock had fallen in Washington after he refused to back down in a row over Jewish construction in east Jerusalem.
The Israeli prime minister arrived at the White House on Tuesday evening brimming with confidence that the worst of the crisis in his country's relationship with the United States was over.
When the Israeli prime minister stalled, Mr Obama rose from his seat declaring: "I'm going to the residential wing to have dinner with Michelle and the girls."
As he left, Mr Netanyahu was told to consider the error of his ways. "I'm still around," Mr Obama is quoted by Israel's Yediot Ahronot newspaper as having said. "Let me know if there is anything new."

I really believe that is why G-d has blessed the USA so much is because we have been a friend and staunch supporter of Israel. Look at what has happened to the British in 60 short years. Gone from “sun never set” to “irrelevant” because they opposed Israel’s re-creation.
BTW, Q: why did’t the sun ever set? A: G-d could never trust the British in the dark.
“Ive always suspected that Mossad has TONS of info on Barry Soetero...maybe this would be the time for them to release it and wipe the arrogant smirk off of Bambis face!”
Ah, now you’re talking!!!!! Please Bibi play that card!!
I’ll ask again. Why the hell did Netanyahu go to the White House in the first place?
The bigger question, is how would the Palestinian Authority survive without our financial aid?
“the first lady also stopped by Dinosaur Bar-B-Q in Harlem”
Bibi didn’t want halal food anyway.
Actually they do, for the American Jewish Democratic Voter dispises Netanyahu and thinks he is the sole reason there is no peace.
I believe theyre both Columbia grads
Nope. Bibi graduated from MIT (B&M)
BAMBI is acting like a Chicago street thug -
I doubt that Bibi was too surprised by this. Such an affront should have been expected from a man who bows to the King of Saudi Arabia.
His arrogance is breathtaking. And dangerous.
1/20/13 cannot come soon enough. Sarah Palin will make things right.
You crack me up! I can’t take my eyes off of Netanyahu when he speaks. He is such a remarkable leader. I’m a Christ follower. As a nation we’ve replaced the bedrock of Jeudeo-Christian principles of our foundation, with the quicksand of secular progressivism. It’s very sad for those that don’t know to trust in God’s plan, but rather far too many put their trust on some politician’s plan. I pray for those poor misguided souls.
Right church wrong pew. Thanks.
To be snubbed by the marxist muzlim usurper is a badge of honor for right-thinking, moral people.
I'd rather eat boiled shot leather than break bread with this anti-Semitic Marxist Muslim. (there...fixed it!)
Well, IF I were Net I’d be grateful I didn’t have to spend any more time with BO or his freaky family.
Israel should deny entry to George Mitchell. Since the US has embargoed Israel for the last year of all military weapons while providing 10 Billion to the arabs, they have lost their leverage.
Silence can be deafening.
It wasn’t naive. Far from it. It was necessary for Bibi to come.
‘Enery the Eighth, I yam, I yam
BINGO! Excellent post!
So B. Hussein Obama has no class; we knew that already.
That’s not something you pick up while being shuttled from one miserable muslim country to another by your floozy hippy mom;
I hope Bibi and IDF are considering new sources for armaments, fast.
Netanyahu is a true hero,and a great leader that we should all have limitless respect for!! I cringe in shame to hear about the treatment the Obamanation in our oval office has given him. I am a Christian conservative and without faith in our Lord would have felt overwhelmed by the Evil being dealt to America by the Demonrats...
Netanyahu should have arranged to meet instead with Republican leaders, then flown back to Israel.
Did you forget your /sarc tag?
If not, let me be the first to say: IB4Z!!
I hope you are right that they have info on that slime bag and they do release it.
Anything new, let's see... How about the Palestinians have unequivocally agreed to immediately and unconditionally lay down their arms, recognize Israel and its right to exist, and stop trying to kill Jews. < /sarcasm >
Meeting with the Republicans would now be a perfect move. Israel could see who the real allies are, plus it would send the message that Bibi is dealing with those who will be in power in the near future.
Obama must watch the history channel. This is similar to the way Hitler treated the one-time leader of Austria and the Czech President.
Bibi is a true leader. He had to come and face evil even if he personally doesn't want to. By contrast, Obama, a false prophet, will always shy away from anything that he can't control.
No it isn’t. God will hear His people’s cry once again...
Obambi is one weird person!
Most of them are liberal. At least here in the northeast. Can't figure that out...
We have a drooling, pouting, spoiled, immature little baby running our foreign policy.
Did Obama stick his tongue out at Bibi as he left?
Why am I not surprised? How inspiring to know that our president is a total jerk.
Wake up leftie American Jews. If American conservatives are destroyed, so too will Israel be. Please, don’t repeat your mistake in 2012 of voting for this man in huge numbers a second time.
I remember reading about the phenomenon of the “self-hating Jew” that was common in Jewish literature in the 1920s and 1930s. Are we now seeing another manifestation of this or are these people really duped? Thank God some Jews have bucked the trend and refused to join the Dark Side.
That is a good question, and I do not have an answer. From where does the funding for the Palestinian Authority come? I thought most of it came from Saudi Arabia and Egypt, but this is only a guess. The whole world seems to be against Israel, and until today, America was its own ally.
Just sent to both McCain and Lieberman’s offices
Sen. McCain and Sen. Lieberman both asked the White House to tone down the rhetoric this administration is taking towards Israel. Does the Senator have a comment on the disrespectful, tasteless and crass way the Prime Minister of Israel was treated at the White House last night?
Benjamin Netanyahu was left to stew in a White House meeting room for over an hour after President Barack Obama abruptly walked out of tense talks to have supper with his family, it emerged on Thursday....con’t
But Mr Obama was less inclined to be so conciliatory. He immediately presented Mr Netanyahu with a list of 13 demands designed both to the end the feud with his administration and to build Palestinian confidence ahead of the resumption of peace talks. Key among those demands was a previously-made call to halt all new settlement construction in east Jerusalem.
When the Israeli prime minister stalled, Mr Obama rose from his seat declaring: “I’m going to the residential wing to have dinner with Michelle and the girls.”
As he left, Mr Netanyahu was told to consider the error of his ways. “I’m still around,” Mr Obama is quoted by Israel’s Yediot Ahronot newspaper as having said. “Let me know if there is anything new.”
Senator Lieberman, this is not the way to treat an ally and friend of America it is shameful and an embarrassment to every American.
Having already asked the administration to tone down the rhetoric on Israel, will you now demand that the President make a public apology to the Prime Minister?
That is not on Bibi...that is on Obama.
American pays billions of dollars to the PA through direct funding and through the UN.
Boy, I wish we could have Bibi as our President rather than the arrogant Marxist we currently have.
Indeed He will!
